Customer Question
I have a silver...

I have a silver plated tea caddy by Philip ashberry and sons Sheffield trade mark Britannia and a code number 1451 J, am wanting to know if it is valuable and how old it would be

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
